Have you tried Clicking Start, open My Computer, select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option. Click Yes to confirm.

Hello nimbuscloud,

Another member here at Bleeping Computer recently had a similar problem, but didn't indicate whether or not it had been resolved yet. See the following thread:
